Saving Grace—Bring it On

Tonight on Saving Grace, we are introduced to more of the supporting cast, including Grace's dog and several of her co-workers. Grace shoots a deer, has two men fight over her, and wrestles an angel. Oh, and James Marsters (Buffy, Angel) appears, in a small but pivotal role. In fact, considering the importance of the role to the story, it seemed like he should have had more screen time, as his throwaway scene near the beginning didn't give us a lot to build on as the murder mystery was constructed.

This show doesn't seem to be trying to take itself too seriously, and I like that. On the other hand, some serious drama develops in this week's episode, culminating in a surprise ending that was sufficiently set up to make sense, but not so out of left field as to feel contrived. Earl seemed a bit superfluous this week, but the story of Grace's angel was woven in much as it was last week, with Grace still trying to decide if he's even real or not.
